When considering a career move or accepting your first professional job, it’s important to take cost of living into account.
Sure, Hawaii sounds great, but a cup of joe could cost you nearly $9, if you live in Honolulu.
It used data from the latest version of the 2018 Cost of Living Index from The Council for Community and Economic Research to compare the cost of goods and services in different cities across the U.S.
Coffee isn’t the only thing that will cost you an arm and a leg, if you live in Honolulu: It is also the most expensive when it comes to groceries, produce and transportation.
Even though Honolulu tops many lists for the most expensive goods and services, two other cities have higher costs of living: San Francisco and New York.
Overall, San Francisco had the highest cost of living relative to the national average (91.4% higher). Meanwhile, Harlingen, Texas, is furthest below the national average (23.5% lower).
